Just verifying, does the Sennheiser EW 100 G3 have zero latency?

Just verifying, does the Sennheiser EW 100 G3 have zero latency?

So, I know the Sennheiser EW 100 G3 has, please correct me if I'm wrong, an all analog signal chain. It's digitally controlled but there is no A:D/D:A conversion happening anywhere.

I'm going to be using it as a reference for testing a digital system soon, so I want to be absolutely certain, does it have any latency or not?

(I'm assuming it doesn't also because nowhere in the documentation or Sennheiser's website does it even acknowledge latency as a variable relevant to the spec, let alone a specific number, but I just want to be certain)

Thank you in advance!

Analog.

Nothing electronic is truly zero (velocity factor, propogation etc.) theoretically, but yes, this is an analogue system end to end so effectively zero.

It's analog. There are very few digital wireless systems.

I agree but I guess what I mean is, for purpose of acoustics, human perception, there is negligible practical latency.

Yep. Not detectable by human ear.

dunno about this particular series but i've come across analog wireless mics/inears which used dsp to implement equalizers and dynamics etc. so signal got converted and hence one would experience latency.

haven't been checking into details on newer systems as i'm trying to avoid any wireless mics/inears if not really needed - and honestly now: how often is that the case?

No digi-DSP here. Open and check the manual:

Sennheiser ew 300 IEM G3 - Live Microphone - Wireless Monitoring System with PC control

I've used mine for wireless remote speaker feeds and have not encountered any latency issues at all.

AFAIK the EM3732 is the only "hybrid" receiver from Sennheiser.
